Compare server configurations

In this example, the current configuration of a server is compared to a previous version to see what has changed.

To demonstrate this, firstly, the World Wide Web Publishing service is disabled in the services management console:

Then an ODBC data source server name is changed:

ODBC data source server name changed
ODBC data source server name changed

Once the server has been scanned again by the XIA Configuration Client, it is compared with a previous version:
